Jul 28, 2023 | Sports, Videos

The Pittsburgh Pirates had a roller coaster of a 2012 season. But one fan, Greg Allison, decided to capture it on film. His documentary, BUCN, takes viewers on an unforgettable journey through the highs and lows of the Pirates’ memorable season.

Part 1 starts off with some uplifting footage from Spring Training and Opening Day highlights. Fans get to witness the team’s elation when they took home their first victory against the Cleveland Indians in May.

Part 2 dives into some of the more intense moments of the season with a trip to Cleveland and The Gathering – a historic event for Pirates fans celebrating the first game of Andrew McCutchen’s career as an everyday starter. The Gathering was just one example of how passionate Pirates fans can be; Part 2 also showcases some epic highlights from throughout the 2012 campaign.

Finally, Part 3 takes us along for an emotional ride as we look at some lowlights and revisit their final game of the season in New York City against the Yankees. It’s an honest reflection on what was an overall disappointing year for Pittsburgh baseball – but that didn’t stop them from being one of MLB’s most beloved teams!

Whatever your opinion on this team is or whether you’re a die-hard Pirates fan or not, BUCN is sure to entertain all viewers with its intimate account of what can only be described as a tumultuous season.
